John Grandizio, Green Beret...NOT!!

John Grandizio was brought to our attention by a member of a Ranger Regiment forum (to vet him) after his wedding photos showed up online due to some rather major irregularities in his uniform. As with most frauds, there were just too many things wrong to ignore. John Grandizio, fake Ranger and Fake Green Beret, had the full attention of this group which also reached out to a brother that was also a member of SF Brothers due to his representation of the SF long tab. Some tried to contact John but he subsequently removed his online profiles. The Ranger and SF forums worked together to gather the information required to vet John Grandizio. He was nothing that he claims. We see he was assigned to

163d Military Intelligence Battalion for a short time.

The following summarizes the results:
